How to Replace Spark Plugs and Ignition Coils – Ford Mustang GT 1996-2004
The spark plug touches off the air-fuel blend inside the motor. Spark plugs are presented to elevated degrees of intensity and tension while inside the motor, yet the industrial facility spark plugs are intended to endure more than 80,000 miles. When a spark plug arrives at the finish of its administration life, the driver might see diminished choke reaction, motor power, and mileage.
A spark plug comprises a plated metal shell, an artistic encasing, and a cathode stretching out through the middle. Elevated degrees of voltage produced inside the curl packs arrive at the terminal and afterward drop down to the middle cathode. This is when the spark between the middle terminal and the ground anode happens. The spark plug seals the ignition chamber, which requires the last twisting to be exact for issue-free activity. This force spec influences spark plug cooling, which decides spark plug life and motor execution-related concerns. As the spark goes from the middle anode to the ground cathode many times over its years, the terminal tip hole starts to extend. When the spark plug accessible voltage level dips under the expected voltage level, it will never again touch off the fuel and result in fizzles.
- 5/8″ spark plug attachment (favor broadened type)

- Level head screwdriver
- 9/32″ wrench or attachment
- Elastic gloves
- Wellbeing glasses
- 8 new spark plugs that meet industrial facility particulars
- Against seize
- Hole apparatus
- Longnose forceps (discretionary)

Stage 1 – Remove the air admission tube
Relax the two metal hose clips by turning them counterclockwise with a level head screwdriver. Pull the two air hoses off the right half of the admission. You might need to bend these as you pull if they are difficult to eliminate.
Stage 2 – Unplug loop pack and injector on number four-chamber
The number four-loop pack is straightforwardly close to the firewall on the traveler’s side of the motor. The loop gets lined together front to back on top of the motor close to the inward side of the valve covers. Because of space limitations, the number four curl pack should be unplugged for evacuation. The point expected to eliminate may harm the electrical connector. The fuel injector connector is taken out for space limitations, too.
While eliminating the fuel injector connector, note the red gasket around the edge. Ensure this gasket is in a similar spot during re-establishment.
Longnose forceps or an electrical connector partition device can be utilized to make the occupation more straightforward. Search for the adaptable tab on the electrical connectors and press it while at the same time pulling the connector away from the loop pack/injector.
Stage 3 – Unbolt and eliminate the curl packs
Eliminate the 9/32″ bolt on the highest point of the curl packs. When the bolt is taken out, the curl packs can be pulled off the motor, uncovering the spark plug tube opening. You might have to turn while you pull assuming the loop pack is challenging to eliminate.
Stage 4 – Remove the spark plugs
Utilize a 5/8″ spark plug attachment with a 6″ expansion to eliminate the spark plugs. A wobble expansion with a drawn-out arrive at spark plug attachment turns out best for those areas with tight freedom.
As your turn, the fastener, ensure it’s situated by the spark plug tube, if not you can harm the strings inside the chamber head.
When the plug is adequately free, the spark plug can be turned with only the augmentation.
Stage 5 – Check the hole on the new spark plugs
Your spark plugs should be gapped at 0.054″. If your motor is changed, the hole should be more like .050″ (the more altered your motor is, the lower it should be).
Try not to hole iridium-tipped spark plugs. The iridium is not difficult to break. Open the ground cathode with your gapping instrument via cautiously prying against it. The ground cathode can be squeezed descending against a hard surface to make the hole more modest.
A modest quantity of enemies of seizing can be put on the strings whenever wanted.
